exposure: the fact of experiencing something or being affected by it because of being in a particular situation or place (Cambridge Dictionary)
Exposures is a series of online exhibitions that aims to reflect on topics related to the current context, and around the general idea of ‘The body and the other’.
Exposures #01. The first proposal is an adaptation of the project that we presented a few months ago for Loop’19, entitled 26 thousand light years. To the works by ANNIKA KAHRS, ALICIA KOPF and TERESA SOLAR, this time a work by PEDRO TORRES is added. This exhibition can be seen for 15 days.
26 thousand light years gathers a selection of videos that link stories or personal reflections with the space exploration, technology and science. The exhibition title, 26 thousand light years, refers to the distance that separates us from Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*), a supermassive black hole located in the center of the Milky Way, the observation of which seems to confirm that black holes grow by absorbing minor ones and stars. The scientific speculation towards the outer space often approaches science fiction, as it appears in the works we present.
